Anybody selling a used 180 rear?

I know this belongs in the F/S section(mods feel free to move), but I'd really like to get back on the road by this weekend.

It only really needs to last a few weeks(rest of riding season maybe?)of commuting/moderate street riding. No track or anything crazy. I dont think tread pattern makes a difference for street riding, but the front is a fairly new Q2 that will EASILY last the rest of this season. I plan on replacing the set next year, plus funds wouldn't be available for a new rear for the next couple weeks. Thanks!

Very good price, I'll keep it mind. Not to be a cheap-ass, but vehicle repair funds are tied up in new brakes for the car for the next few weeks(per wife) and motorcycle tire is sort of a luxury ATM.

Plus I'm looking to migrate to Pilot Road 3s next fall, so a new rear kinda doesnt make sense if you know what I mean.

Ask Vern if he has any rubbers lying around.

I know when I went for my tire change, I took the other tires he had out front with me since his garbage guy won't pick them up.

After you factor in the time and cost to remove/install the wheel and tire, is it really worth the hassle of throwing on a used tire for just 2 months?

Put the new tire on credit and you'll have 4-5 weeks until the bill shows up. I pretty much have it planned out at times for bigger purchases to buy something right when the new billing cycle starts, and I won't have to pay for another 8 weeks.

Bill shows up, pay in full, win win situation

The downside of being 100% debt-free is we have no plastic(by choice)except bank credit/debit cards, so your plan is not an option. No kids/no CCs FTW

No, used doesnt make alot of sense, but partly I'm looking to start out next season with a freshly installed pair of Pilot Roads. 2 months? for the last 3yrs I never really "stored" my bike. My riding season season could go well up into January.

Its not debt if you pay it in full every single time. Don't think I've ever made a partial/late payment on a CC and I've had one since I was 16.

On the other side of that equation I use my debit card 1-2x a year, so almost never

If you ride your bike well into January thats even a bigger reason to just put fresh rubber on now.

If you have tire mounting/balancing equip than I can understand how its worth using take-offs just for a few months, otherwise you're spending time/money getting the used tire installed.

I've used take-offs, etc but very low mileage ones and then put 4-5k on them to make it worthwhile

Good luck tho, I'm sure Grasshopper has some too. I have a spare 160 but that wouldn't help you

Not sure why you're opposed to a track take off, seems like a perfect fit for you. If you go that route, I have a pirelli supercorsa that should fit the bill.

Vern probably still has my tires from last time. The front is shot but the rear is still very good considering I rarely use the rear brake. Give him a call!

No, I'm not at all opposed to a track takeoff. I just meant that the tire only had to be adequate(read:safe) for commuting and light/moderate street riding.

I have one for free if you want. It's a little flat spotted down the middle, but it's free.

Thanks alot for all the great offers! In light of a couple helpful posts, I decided it made more sense to support my local dealer and take Ken up on an unbeatable offer. Speaking of which, big shout out to CP. Ken had the bike in immediately on arrival and had it out within minutes. He even threw me a few tips and some performance advice on my exhaust. Great experience all togethor, I will be back.

Definitely the smarter route in the long run.

Does that mean you're coming to ride with us tomorrow?

Could meet you at the Dekalb Oasis at 8?
